The wedding of Sarah & Lewis took place on a warm mid-October day between two venues – St. Peter’s Church & Adlington Hall. Sarah got ready at her parents’ house, kept company by her mum, dad, bridesmaids and dog Alfie. The bridal party were a super chill and sweet bunch, which made for a really nice and relaxing morning. Meanwhile, Lewis was making his way over to St. Peter’s Church in Congleton ready for the ceremony.
Sarah arrived in a gorgeous, cream vintage wedding car, and stepped out looking stunning. Her dark brown hair was swept back into an up-do, and she was wearing a beautiful, floor-length white gown. Lewis wore a handsome dark blue suit, grey waistcoat and deep red tie which matched the bridesmaids dresses and Sarah’s bouquet.
The ceremony was lovely, with a few readings having been chosen by the couple themselves. 1 Corinthians 13, a strong verse about love, and Romans 8 vs 31-38. “God’s love exceeds everything, nothing can separate us from his love. If we base our love on God’s love for us, this will strengthen our relationship in every aspect.”
After the procession made their way outside, there was the confetti throw before Sarah & Lewis hopped into the vintage wedding car and were waved off. Everyone then made their way over to Adlington Hall. Nestled in Cheshire, this venue is such a beautiful English country home. It is set in gorgeous gardens and surrounded by a picturesque 2000-acre estate. The happy couple chose Adlington Hall because they “both thought it would be beautiful for autumn – warm fire and beautiful trees.”
Upon arrival, the newlyweds and I took 20 minutes out for a relaxing stroll around the gardens and a couple photoshoot. They afterwards joined their wedding party for drinks and chatting before gathering together for the wedding breakfast. The wedding breakfast room was warm, grand and welcoming. The decorations laid out paid homage to the couple’s love for travelling and the places that they have been together. A perfect example of this was the handmade world map seating plan, which was a fab idea. After a delicious wedding breakfast came the speeches. The rest of the evening was full of love, laughter and happiness as the newlyweds celebrated the day with their nearest & dearest.
